Mike purchased his farm in 1997, a few years after receiving a Masters Degree in Animal Science from UC Davis. He began by growing a small selection of items that included tomatoes, potatoes, and strawberries. One of his first customers was a bright young chef who had an affinity for everything local and delicious and sustainably farmed, before it was en vogue. That chef happened to be Jeff Black, the owner and chef of Addies Restaurant in Rockville, MD. Today Mike's ultra fresh produce is featured at BRG restaurants, where each restaurant always looks forward to his evening deliveries. He is known to have some of the best asparagus and sweetest strawberries available, all grown in Brandywine, MD, right outside D.C.'s city limits. Mike only delivers to a select group of restaurants and refuses to get any bigger, but he adds "I'll always be willing to save room for a Jeff Black restaurant." Our chefs and guests are happy about that.
